Letter 4/15/2013

hola familia! Well the shift key really doesn't work on this computer so you'll have to forgive me not using capital letters, but this week turned out to be really good. On Tuesday we were walking by a nasty looking river with couches and things thrown in it, and some lady shouted at us to go over to her house so we did. She told us she was an inactive member and after talking with her for a bit we learned that she and her family of about 13 people are all inactive, and all because of gossip that spread around the ward. we helped her try to get over what had happened and this Sunday she came to church. But also another miracle came from this story. It turns out her husband Alberto isn't a member. But she kicked him out so now he lives in a room that is shaped like a triangle and there's barely enough room for his bed and his tiny portable tv. He really can't move room his bed because about 1 month ago he was shot in the leg and it destroyed his femur. to describe Alberto to you hes a guy that never has a shirt on, about 60 years old, short and a drunk. I didn't think much of our visit on Tuesday, but we decided to come back on Sunday, (yesterday) and he had thrown out all of his alcohol, he cleaned up his tiny room, he read the pamphlet we gave him, and as we taught him from his bed, the spirit was really strong and testified to me that he was a very sorry for what type of person he was and wanted to repent, so i asked him if he'd like to be baptized. He just stared at us and said... i want to. what do i have to do. we told him and set a baptismal date for the 18 of may. Things are going good in the area. today we went to the offices to have a meeting with the president and then play basketball. so now comes the 1 hour drive back to my area you'll have to forgive me for not writing more. one day ill tell you about all of my spiritual experiences and the things that are happening with more detail. but i love you all and i cant wait to see you all soon. élder smitheram
